Panic! At the Disco plays in Columbus

By Kayla Bowermaster


Panic! At the Disco, a band mostly known for their hit song “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” played a concert for their newest album Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die at the LC Pavilion in Columbus on January 24, 2014. Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die, the album that came out last October, features some great hits, the album itself peaked number two on the US Billboard 200, and the band also performed many other singles from earlier albums.

The venue itself was quite large, but since the show sold out so early, the entire place was packed with excited fans. With so many people around it can be hard to find a good spot and even harder to actually see the stage, but when the music starts almost everyone will be dancing, and the band will be visible to everyone at some point. Some people will even be willing to move for you to see, even in a crowd of hundreds of people, it is easy to make friends.

    The band themselves performed an extraordinary show, especially amazing since the Panic! At the Disco lead singer, Brendon Urie, was sick and losing his voice that day. But with the entire audience singing along the show went on and was a spectacular night for everyone there. There was also amazing light set ups, with laser shows, and large screen displaying backdrop images and videos of things like vintage black and white movies, some cartoons, and even cathedral-style stained glass windows for the band’s single This Is Gospel.    


    Overall, the show was an amazing experience for all Panic! At the Disco fans, new and old, with audience interactions and fun people to meet. Panic! At the Disco is a band that must be seen live, and the next time they tour in Ohio it will be just as amazing as before.
